Some more roster changes.
Yesterday, Jordan Nixon, of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish women’s basketball team, announced that she was entering the transfer portal. Additionally, she mentioned in an Instagram post that she is absolutely leaving the team. Jordan Nixon was a freshman that did not see much game action this year. She only mainly played in a road game against UNC when Jackie Young was injured for that game.
With a starting 5 all getting drafted in the WNBA Draft back in April, it was tough for deeper bench players to receive some minutes. Now, there have been some transfers to the program, and Anaya Peoples comes in for her freshman year as a point guard. Danielle Patterson also entered the transfer portal after this past season ended.
Another transfer to the program.
One of the transfers coming to the Irish is Marta Sniezek from Stanford. She is eligible to play right away, and she is in her fifth year of eligibility. She had defensive accolades in the Pac 12, which would help in the loss of Jessica Sheperd and Brianna Turner. She joins fellow transfer Destinee Walker from UNC.
ACC/B1G Challenge Set
Also in scheduling news for the Irish next season, the Irish will bring in Minnesota to Purcell Pavilion in the annual ACC/Big 10 Challenge. The game will be on Wednesday, December 4. Game time and network is still being determined. This is an interesting matchup, as the two teams have only met twice before, and the Irish lost both times in the 1994 and then 2009 NCAA Tournaments. If the Irish win, they would have their first ever win over the Golden Gophers.
